i have to admit, i’ve been less than enthused with loeffler randall’s offerings this year. they’re just not doing it for me like they normally do. even this shoe, their yvette cut-out pump, just looked out of place to me when i first spotted it. but then i saw it being worn, and i’m beginning to see the light.
i do love the tri-color, and suede is always a favorite of mine. i’ve finally warmed to the shoe bootie, and that probably explains some of my newfound respect for this shoe. the cutout was concerning me, but then i saw some photos of it being worn, and i actually think the cutout gives a more light, delicate look to this, which most shoe booties really, really lack.
good, right? a vast improvement, i thought. plus, i have to admit i’m really in love with that zipper detail on the back.
in all, they’re a major splurge at $575, but i think they’d make a pretty amazing addition to your closet – one that would stay a standout for years.
so, what do you think of these? are they splurge-worthy to you?
